Also for page numbering my batch script updates a common page number include
file that the next song simply includes. This file contains nothing more
\firstPageNumber = #42
the variable \firstPageNumber is referenced by the scores, the batch job
just updates the #number value for the starting point of the next song
Also all songs are based on a common shared template that keeps the overall
style strictly enforced.
